    They are the side benefits of yoga not the goal of yoga – Radhanath Swami gives a correct understanding that stands clear and visible through the thick smoke of the glamour of mysticism.

    Bhakti yoga is the supreme goal of life, i.e. Practicing Krishna Consciousness.

    Very knowledgable article…..in this modern era, it is so enlivening to hear about the existence of these supernatural powers……..But as Swamiji says, though fascinating, they are mere distractions on the path of spiritual life…….

    Radhanath Swami says these yogic powers are a distraction for the serious practitioner and are a trap because they lead us away from the goal of spiritual life….Very profound statement!

    Very nice meditation.The real meaning of the Yoga is given in Bhagvad-Gita.Radhanath Swami always emphases that real yoga means to connect ourselves with God and engage ourselves in loving devotional service unto Him and not to get some super natural powers.Yes these powers are distraction on path of devotional life which surely force us to forget The God.

    it is really amazing to see how the yogis are at a superior level to modern science, this must provoke us to see how the vedic literature are far superior to modern science, philosophy and culture. Thank you very much for giving us valuable knowledge

    Bhakthi Yoga is the only way in this Kali Yuga. Yoga is to reunite our souls with God and not to increase our powers

    As per Bhagwat Gita, Yoga means union…Union of soul with the SUPREME. As a side effect, Yogi may get powers, but they seem to be just a way to test the Yogi’s determination to carry on with his pursuit to attain Love for KRISHNA, or gets bewildered on half way by pride of such mystic achievements.

    Very true. The aim of Yoga is not to obtain siddhis, but to unite with God.

    Radhanath Swami has given this clear distinction between what should be the goal of spirituality and what are its side effects. As we look around we find many spiritual practitioners taking undue advantage of their spiritual powers to attract followers ! This message of Radhanth swami will help us to recognise them and stay away from them.

    The actual goal of yoga is to establish our relation with the supreme & not to attain suernatural powers.

    maharaj says that these yogic powers just breed a sense false pride which blinds the yogi from higher realzations of God.

    Radhanath Swami says these yogic powers are a distraction for the serious practitioner and are a trap because they lead us away from the goal of spiritual life. However they do increase our faith in higher powers.
    ys- I agree…

    See how wisely yogis those who have powers admit that these are not spiritual rather material and they are not proud of there powers…and they believe in supreme GOD.. Scientist, intellectuals and atheists can learn..

    Completely agree with Maharaj ji that these supernatural yogic powers instill faith in the higher powers of universe but yogic siddhis are certainly distractions for a sincere practicener of bhakti yoga.

    Modern science though definitely advanced has a lot to learn from Vedic paradigms and the Vedic way of life. The above incident just goes to show this. Thank you for sharing.
